Molding compounds that contain fully or partly components that have been already subjected to a processing process for the final product such as semi-finished products, finished parts or sprues have the generic term recyclates.
The name recyclate is a combination of the words recycling and the suffix of many plastics (for example acrylate).
A recyclate may refer to: regrind, regranulate or compound.

Recyclates are no prime material but can substitute prime material in several applications and save CO2 emissions.
